Davenport Grand Hotel Reached Final Stages of Construction

By M+E Staff

The Davenport Grand Hotel crew “topped out” the new hotel November 17. To “top out” is a Scandinavian tradition practiced by placing a tree and a flag on the top of the final piece added to a new building. The crew then signs the final piece before it is attached. The final piece at the hotel was a concrete panel added to the 17-story building.
The Davenport Grand Hotel is a part of the Marriott International’s Autograph Collection. The hotel is ahead of its construction schedule, with a current completion date set for summer 2015.
“We congratulate Walt and Karen Worthy and the entire team at the Davenport Hotel Collection,” said Cheryl Kilday, Visit Spokane president & CEO. “We think the new hotel will provide an additional reason for travelers to set their sights on the Spokane region.”
“Meeting planners want this and our growing region needs this,” said Kilday. “We look forward to working with the Davenport team and all the area’s hotels to bring bigger and more conventions to Spokane.” 
The Davenport Grand Hotel is across the street from the Spokane Convention Center and is a prime location for future meetings and conventions.​
